Jesse Offill

Cooley & Offill

Jesse Offill was born in the small eastern Kentucky town of Olive Hill. He enjoyed growing up in the forests of eastern Kentucky, but became interested in computers and programming as a child, when his sister married a computer scientist from Lexington. Jesse became enamored with the law while earning his Bachelor's degree at Transylvania University. He worked part time as a runner at the law rm of McCoy, West, Franklin, & Beal, which conveniently bordered campus. When he saw the intelligence and efectiveness of those lawyers, it seemed like they had super powers.

Jesse was awarded his Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Louisville in 2009. During law school he was awarded a limited legal practice license and practiced with the Louisville Commonwealth's
Attorney.

He began working for Robert Cooley in 2010 focusing primarily on personal injury and bankruptcy cases. Jesse's advanced knowledge of technology and computer systems helped grow the law practice quickly. Five years later the pair founded Cooley & Offill.

Cooley & Offill has grown to become a regional law firm with three offices in Louisville, Lexington, and Owensboro.

Jesse is married to Natalie Offill, and is a proud father of two children. He is a past president of the Daviess County Rotary Club and has served as a panel speaker for various organizations and colleges. He still loves the outdoors and computer science, and his passion is using the law to help injured people.
